2 pedestrians injured in Eastpointe after being struck by car

Several people were injured following a multi-vehicle crash in Eastpointe.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon on 8 Mile Road near Gratiot.

Police say three people, including two pedestrians, were injured following a four-vehicle crash. One of the pedestrians is in critical condition.

Police say a silver or white Pontiac Grand Prix was traveling eastbound 8 Mile before the driver made a Michigan left onto westbound 8 Mile. 

When the driver made the turn, he ran a red light and almost struck oncoming traffic, police said.

The cars traveling in oncoming traffic saw the car and swerved out of the way. That is when the vehicles collided and hit the two pedestrians.

The driver of the Grand Prix then fled the scene. Anyone with information is asked to contact Eastpointe Police at 586-445-8957.
